The Platinum American Eagle bullion and proof coin programs are very different from one another. When the coins debuted in 1997, the same designs were used on both obverse and reverse faces of the coins. Now though, proof Platinum Eagles have different reverse designs every year.
¼ oz Platinum American Eagle Coins were originally available in the bullion versions from 1997 to 2008, at which point the entire program was put on hold. While originally not the most popular of the four weights available, the ¼ oz Platinum American Eagle Coin had the highest mintage of all four weights in bullion in the last year of availability (2008).
The reverse of all ¼ oz Platinum American Eagle coins features the design of an American bald eagle soaring over America. It features an eagle with wings spread wide as it glides over the continent, with the sun rising into the sky in the background.
On the obverse of the ¼ oz Platinum American Eagle coin is the image of Liberty gazing into the future. It is based upon her image as found on the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, and focuses on her facial features only rather than her full figure.
